jQuery – The Write Less, Do More, JavaScript Library

jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is light weight (around 19KB when Minified & Gzipped), cross-browser (IE 6.0+, FF 2+, Safari 3.0+, Opera 9.0+, Chrome), and supports CSS1-3 selectors.

jQuery allows you to write Unobtrusive JavaScript by separating the “behavior” characteristics from the HTML structure. For example, instead of directly specifying the on-click event handler in the specification of a button element, a jQuery driven page would first identify the button element, and then modify its on-click event handler.

jQuery is free, open source software; released on January 2006 by John Resig under MIT License and the GNU General Public License. You can find further information, demo & download on jQuery Website.
